Remembering 9/11


I've written about 9/11 before on this blog --
my entry called Blood Red Pants documents my own personal memory
of that day.

I don't really want to say too much about it,
yet I want to acknowledge the anniversary.

Because, quite frankly,
we can't forget history --
history is our story
and the story
of the last ten years has been the history
we have written in the wake
of that horrible day --

We do have the power to change this story
if we guide the pen
with no ego,
with no evil,
with a full understanding that history
can and will repeat itself
if we let it.

The best tribute I've heard to 9/11 is Judy Collins' Kingdom Come --

I've posted it before.
I'll do it again.
Thank you Judy,
and may the souls of those who died on 9/11/01
and those who have died
in the decade since,
sacrificed for the sake of 9/11,
rest
in peace.

A sad anniversary. Doesn't seem like it's been 10 years already.

maybe...some day...ALL people will look past religion, beliefs, color...and realize that we all came into this world the same way...and when we die, the same thing will happen to each and every one of us.

such senseless tragedy...
in the sake of religion??!! it's sad...
